Great White Bites

QUOTE
"We're either an efficient team that can be real effective, or we're inefficient and we lose games. So the next little bit will tell us what we really are." - Todd McLellan

FACT
The Blackhawks have beaten the Sharks twice this season, both in regulation.

FACT
The Blackhawks are the best team in the NHL with a record of 13-0-3 and can set the NHL record for the best start to a season if the Sharks don't win in regulation.

MEANING
This Blackhawks are motivated, and rested, because they too haven't played since Tuesday.

SO
Per McLellan's quote we'll get an idea of what the Sharks team is made of.

LOSE
And clearly the Hawks are a better team right now and there is much work to be done with time to do it.

WIN
You beat the top team in their rink when they were rested and motivated which makes a statement that the Sharks are a team to be reckoned with.
